Has anyone ever heard of them or dealt with them?

I am looking at possibly getting a Fuji S-9100 and they seem to have a deal that just seems to good to be true. For $474.99 they claim to sell you a new in the box camera plus .42x wide, 2x telephoto lenses, soft and hard cases, 2GB CF card.

Any feed back on them would be appreciated. The lowet other price I found on the same camera is $499 with no extras.

Thanks in advance for any advise good or bad you can provide on this

I Googled for them and came up with hits in several photo forums. The summary of what was said was not encouraging.

I looked at one of their sales on ebay. All of the 'great' extras they're including look like a pile of crap to me, probably not worth more than $50 (I'm being very generous). That means the camera is costing you $425...plus $30 shipping?

You can buy the S9100 at Beach for $385. Buy some decent accessories at your leisure.

Searching for the lowest price is a very good way to find the fraud dealers.

Take a look at the prices at B&H, Addorama, Buydig, (other folks can add other reputable dealers to the list) ... It is a good idea to avoid anyone who comes in a lot lower than them.

I was search bhphotovideo, beach camera, Adorama and broadway photo plus I also did newegg.com for the memory cards I would need

I did find through newegg.com a 4GB 100x speed pqi CF card that should do the trick combained with the stack of 1GB xD cards I have. But might go with whoever I oreder the camera from

Broadway photo was the lowest price at $352 but bhphotovideo that I have dealt with for years is $390.95.

Combined that with a hot shoe flash and batteries (for it) and a Kingston 4GB 133x CF card ($69) and broadway comes in about $28 cheaper than bhphotovideo.

I am still doing my research at this time

Then I have to try to impress my boss into ordering this for me........ or I guess foot the bill myself

I think JimC stated it even blunter than Rinnie or Bill did. Any alledged equipment seller that even breaths anything about "broadway" in name or location is at the center of most photo related Internet fraud. Listen to them.
